Ricardo Beverly Hills is a well known for its iconic collections such as the Beaumont, Cupertino and Rodeo Drive but they have recently upped their game with the release of the all new Aileron Aluminum Spinner Suitcase.
In 2019, Ricardo Ricardo Beverly Hills entered the high-end Aluminum luggage world with the addition of their Aileron series suitcase. They are in good company with other top aluminum sided brands like Rimowa and Zero Halliburton.
This case is priced at a fraction of the competition without sacrificing quality and craftsmanship. It is built with aircraft grade aluminum and lined with a futuristic looking metalic mesh material.
We love the look of Aluminum suitcases but they do need a little extra care and attention because they tend to be easily scratched and dented. There is not much that you can do to stop this. We have heard good reports about travellers buying covers for their aluminum suitcases that stop most of the minor scratching.
For most issues, Ricardo Beverly Hills offer a "First Year of Ownership: Quality Guarantee" that covers: Defects due to faulty materials or workmanship, Damages caused by normal wear and tear (i.e. defective handles, zippers, locks, wheels) and Transportation damage (i.e. by airline, hotels, etc).
What is so great about this suitcase? Who dosen't love an aluminum suitcase? They look so sleek and modern. We especially love the look of this suitcase not just because of how it looks on the outside. We also love the interior finish on the Aileron. The interior is finished with metalic weave that makes it look even more futuristic.
The interior is fully lined and has mesh pockets for higher visibility and dividers to keep your valuables neat and organised. Ricardo Beverly Hills has used a finishing process on their shells that provide a much longer-lasting finish.
The locking and latching mechanism look very similar to other high end aluminum cases with a standard three-point locking system complete with twin TSA locks. On the blue colored cases, these latches come in black to create an attractive contrast with the aluminum shells.
The Ricardo Beverly Hills Aileron Spinner Suitcase has the three main features that we look for in a really safe suitcase. The aircraft grad aluminum shells provide strength, durability and flexibility. The three-point integrated latching system ensures that the case stays closed even under force. The tongue-and-groove with locking latch system is far superior to zippers for keeping "bad guys" out of your suitcase. This case exudes confidence.
We give this case full marks for safety! It is in line with the other aluminum sided cases that we have reviewed. Although a little heavier than other cases, the Ricardo Beverly Hills Aileron spinner suitcase is a solid choice at a great price.
